Managing Affiliate Types
Affiliate Type Options
Affiliate types have 3 main settings. The first, "default" determines which type newly registered affiliates will be assigned. The second option, "can pre-register leads" allows the affiliate to enter the email addresses of potential leads that have not used the site yet. When someone visits the site and uses the pre-registered email address, they will automatically be assigned to the affiliate who has pre-registered them. The third option is archiving. An archived affiliate type will no longer be active.
Assigning a Type to Affiliates
Once you have created an affiliate type, you can manually set the type of your affiliate to include it.
